Thinking about // I really want to redecorate!!! So, so, SO bad! I have really gotten the decorating itch. Unfortunately, Sam says we need to wait until we buy a house (in a year) before I buy any new furniture or a new rug. I can only tolerate about a year of sameness before I need a decorating change. We just don't have the money for a new rug or getting the sofa reupholstered, so I redecorated my coffee table using things I already own.
Reading // I just ordered three books that I'm really excited about:
Kidd’s sweeping novel is set in motion on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership of ten year old Handful, who is to be her handmaid. We follow their remarkable journeys over the next thirty five years, as both strive for a life of their own, dramatically shaping each other’s destinies and forming a complex relationship marked by guilt, defiance, estrangement and the uneasy ways of love.
As the stories build to a riveting climax, Handful will endure loss and sorrow, finding courage and a sense of self in the process. Sarah will experience crushed hopes, betrayal, unrequited love, and ostracism before leaving Charleston to find her place alongside her fearless younger sister, Angelina, as one of the early pioneers in the abolition and women’s rights movements.

Eating // Lots of fruit! Every Friday at work, one of the designers brings in breakfast for the whole group. This past Friday was my turn (we do a rotation), and I ended up with a lot of fruit leftover from my breakfast: cantaloupe, peaches, pineapple, and blueberries (which I don't even like so I need to give them to my mom).
Sam and I have decided we need to make some healthier dinners, so here are some of my recent pins and meal ideas for this week:
